Using Eurail to book Bernina Express (train PE 952) reserved seats apparently costs $15 (USD). But booking reserves seats on the same train thru the Rhätische Bahn website www.rhb.ch costs CHF 26 ($28.87 USD). Is this correct??Will Rhätische Bahn (Bernina Express) honor the Eurail-booked seat reservation?
My son and his best friend (22 and 23) are trying to get from Prague to Basel or Bern on Nov 24, 25, or 26 and eventually to Thun. They have eurail passes. The overnight train looked possible, but when you search Prague to Bern, there’s an issue with the last leg. When I search Prague to Basel, I don’t see the first leg of the prior trip and can’t book it. When I pick other stops, there’s only a paper ticket option, and they’re currently in Lisbon and bouncing around so mailing is not an option. Can they go in person to any train station and pick up a paper ticket? I’ve searched other trains and there’s one that’s insane—$1300 per ticket. The flight is $500 plus, and I was looking for that over night sleeper experience.
I like to make a reservation on the TGV train Brussel midi to Lyon Part Dieu. I just cant figure out on which platform i can do this? On b-europe i cant find the connection just under seat reservations and on the site of France is of course only the French cities you can find. Can someone tell me where i actually can make the seat reservation for this train?kinds regards,Tania
Dear Community members, We have one travel day left in Eurail pass and last day of our trip - 14th of November - we are planning we spend in Disneyland. I am looking on the option to spend our last travel day for travelling from Marne la Valle to Airport Charles de Gaulle but seat reservation is quite expensive, it is showing to me around 80euros for 4 of us. Our flight is scheduled for 11AM. Is seat reservation is really required if the travel time is only 10 minutes? Can we enter the train with Eurail ticket without seat reservation?
I want to book two reservations on the 10:52 train from Stuttgart to Paris on Wednesday December 27 but the response on the Interrail Reservations site is always the same - "Bad RequestYour browser sent a request that this server could not understand.Size of a request header field exceeds server limit." Please can you help - how can I make this reservation? We both have Interrail passes. I have tried via the DB site - but they will only book trains within Germany not into France. The Belgium site will only do Eurostar trains. The French SNCF site doesn’t accept Interrail passes.
Good Morning,We are a family of 4 living in London. We using London as our hub as I need to back in the city for work during the week. So we doing trips Friday through Sunday to different Countries. Are we able to use a Monthly Pass and travel from London to multiple cities. Of course we’ll pick a pass which allows us to access the countries we want to go to. Example would be;Week 1 London to Paris back to LondonWeek 2 London to Brussels back to LondonWeek 3 London to Amsterdam back to London
Total noobie question: I have mapped out our trip in Spain. We will have four travel days in the month. When I price each leg, a first class ticket is about $16USD, so $32USD for my husband and I. Four trips would cost $128USD. A four day Eurail pass for seniors costs more than $700USD. What am I missing? Are there benefits to the Eurail pass that I am not taking into consideration? Or are Eurail passes not cost effective for short intercity trips (Barcelona → Valencia, Valencia→Madrid, Madrid →Cordoba, Cordoba-→Granada)Thanks for any insight!
The map on the Eurail site shows no connection between Madrid and Cordoba. When I use the Plan your Journey section of the Eurail site, Cordoba is not selectable as a destination. But I am able to get a price for Madrid → Cordoba on the Eurail site. Can someone help me explain how this works? Thanks,Kathryn

Hi,i have a global pass for 4 days within a month. I travel from Amsterdam to Salzburg (and back of couse). I travel on 4 different days. I have 3 outbound/inbound days for the Netherlands. What about the 4th day that i travel in the Netherlands? If i book a 4th journey, e.g. from Salzburg to Amsterdam, can i book it uninterrupted or just untill Emmerich in Germany? What’s is the best policy?Thanks, Jan
Why so many trips have legs with no seats available? Looking at early Jan 2024 for Regensburg to Nimes
Every combination from Regensburg to Nimes has at least one leg that is not reservable. Most common is Brussels to Nimes or Lyon to Nimes...also Stuttgart to Strasbourg. I have checked out into February and find the same result. Hard to imagine every train is full completely.
Hello. I am a first-time traveler in Europe. I booked reservations ahead of time. However, when I looked at the timetable for my first trip tomorrow, I noticed that there is a ride with the same schedule and seat reservation requirements. But the train names are different. Will this be a problem when I present my printed ticket?
Hey! I’m looking into buying the Global Pass for travel from the UK to and around Switzerland. I downloaded the Rail Planner app from the Apple App Store where I know passes are stored.But I’m hesitant to buy one because the reviews of the app are almost all negative, with people complaining about it not working properly, not being able to show their pass on trains, having to put in their journeys over & over etc.The most recent review does say the app has been updated to a good standard, but I can’t just ignore all the bad ones.So for those of you that have used it, is it reliable enough to use? Or should I perhaps be looking at the (more expensive) Swiss Travel Pass? The last thing I want is to be unable to show I’ve paid for my trips and have to pay again!
Hello!I need to get a seat reservation for the Puertollano to Badajoz train, but when I called the infoline, the person there told me it’s not possible to book two trains with the change, but I also booked two separate trains right afterwards so why was that not the option?I got the reservations for the rest of my trains in Spain, but not this one. They suggested I just go to the station upon arrival to Puertollano and ask for it there.Does anyone know why this is the case? Should I call them again and ask for just a reservation for that one train? To my knowledge regional trains in Spain do not even require a mandatory reservation, so that only adds to the confusion...
Hello All! Looking for some help / to have my anxiety alleviated! Have purchased a Eurail for 2 people to travel across Europe. I’ve managed to book as far as Vienna, but from there, almost all trains are giving me the ‘prices unavailable’ error. This is the specific route: Vienna - Bucharest: 3rd Jan 2024Bucharest - Istanbul: 7th Jan 2024Istanbul - Ankara: 14th Jan 2024. I’m particularly concerned about the Vienna - Bucharest leg as we’d love to get a Night train (the Dacia 347) but that requires a reservation. I’ve tried on OBB as well as the Romanian carrier’s website but both show ‘tickets not available’ or similar. I understand the December 10th schedule change makes ticket bookings open far later than normal, but most of my research (as well as the OBB website) says night trains/long distance routes should have become available by mid-October. I feel like it’s safe to assume the schedule hasn’t been released yet and to just keep checking. My question is whether anybody has ha
Im planning on going from Gent to Amsterdam on train. I have the global pass. The journey i chose does not need obligatory seat reservation. But i still want to make one. The problem is i cant find which of the railway companies is the one that operates this trip in order to go to their website and make the reservation.The journey is on the 6th of january departing at 8:27.Thanks
I have never used the Eurail before. I already have my reservations for the required trains in advance. But for normal trains, I’m not sure what train I want in advance, can I just show up at the train terminal and add the train to my pass that morning, or do they get overbooked and I’ll find myself unable to board unless I schedule them days out? This is regarding non-reservation trains.
